The trouble with finding proper outerwear is that manufacturers always sacrifice something.: It’s either too short, too long, not waterproof or the colors suck. The list goes on and on. With the Bronxx Jacket and Omak Pant, Scott has created a combo high in style without sacrificing performance.
The relaxed fit and bright color scheme are some of first things you’ll notice. The jacket’s cut is long and slim, while still allowing for full range of motion. The huge add a touch of extra style. Scott also seamlessly integrated a handy pass pocket on the sleeve and headphone compatibility for those long days at the resort. The jacket is insulated, and while shells have always been my preference, I do like the ability to wear fewer layers and utilize the under-arm pit zips. If I had to nit pick my only complaint is with the removable hood. It’s too small and can’t accompany a helmet for those days when you need the extra protection.
The pants have the same relaxed, youthful style and while a bit baggy, they are still a no-nonsense functional piece of gear that won’t let you down on the hill. Inner thigh zips will keep you cool when hiking and adjustable gaiters let you customize the fit. Two thigh zip pockets are also convenient for stashing keys or a small snack.
Overall, Scott delivered a really strong offering. Both pieces have taped seams and an adequate 10.12 rating, providing for a solid waterproof and breathable package. If you’re looking for a kit with style and function check out the Scott Bronxx jacket and Omak pant.
